Pair Halfway measures Several months ago mechanic Tommy Mortensen of Odense, Denmark, sold a station wagon to a man in a nearby town but claimed his customer never paid more than half-trie agreed price. So Mortensen picked the car up, cut it in half and says his customer can have whichever half he prefers. Japanese 'untouchables' make gains in politics, economics New York Times Service OSAKA, Japan After cen- turies of discrimination, Japan's little known outcasts, the Burakumin, have begun to gain a measure of political power and economic progress through a resort to increasing- ly militant, often violent tac- tics. In the Naniwa section of Osaka, an outcast ghetto for more than 400 years, the vocal, well organized Buraku Liberation League has successfully pressed the local government to build new schools, public housing and centres for the elderly to replace the jumble of decay- ing wooden homes, many of them without toilets or plumbing. There is free maternity care for Burakumin mothers now and free school lunches are provided for Burakumin children, descendants of peo- ple who were officially called Eta, or "full or during Japan's long feudal era. Today there are estimated to be about two million Burakumin, or "special village people." This is a neutral term that disguises the centuries of discrimina- tion against them because of their supposedly unclean nature as hereditary butchers and tanners. But in the process of winn- ing improvements in Naniwa and elsewhere, the Buraku Liberation League's tactics have brought it into conflict with elements ranging from the Communist party to the leaders of organized crime. And the league's actions have touched off a major political dispute that is seriously weakening Japan's left wing opposition parties. In one confrontation in November in nearby Hyogo Prefecture, or province, over how teachers should discuss discrimination in class, 52 teachers were beaten over a 13 hour period. 5 TBUY 26" CONTEMPORARY COLOR TV Contempory Credenza Styling Atimlral SOLARCOLOR SOLID STATE 'Color Master1 one touch color control M30 Modular Chassis Solid State Tuners Lighted Channel Indicators Push-Puil control Pre-set VHP fine tuning MFGRS.
